It's 4.30 am and I'm wiped out, but We all have different methods, things that help. Go on YouTube and you will find videos, sound tracks for "masking", it helps some of us. I have taught my self to "zero" in on words on tv, I "think" the words as they say them, my T is louder than ever , I was a medical/legal transcriptionist for 19 yrs, you just type as fast and as accurate as you can, as the Dr is dictating, or has taped the report, the brain just doesn't even seen to be involved in this process, I just learned to reverse the process for my T, I put T in the background, and bring words forward to drown out the T. If that makes sense? I use this method at work now as nail technician, I concentrate on what the client is saying, or the music playing. Days are easier because I'm involved with public. Nights are harder. Being quiet at night is my boogie man. I have fan running, keep tv on till last minute. Going to ENT is important, to check things out, see if it could be temporary. Caused by Rx, or try to find cause, cervical spine issues, TMJ problems, misalignment? Stay as calm as you can, it won't kill you, but despite misinformation, people can suffer severe depression. And give up hope. There are good folks here that will share ideas, give support. It's a process, as is any chronic condition that we are forced to adapt to. I wish you comfort and peace.
thank you j
may i ask from where are you and how many time your are feeling this problem?
I live in Hot Springs National Park, AR. Had T 28 yrs now, it's 24/7. Daytime I ignore all I can, I try to not give it any power. But my days are mainly spend with women , who talk constantly!!! I usually have music playing at work. Night and total silence is when I have challenge, I also have severe chronic pain that is worse at night, combined it is setup for insomnia. You will find things that help you cope, like I said last night, distraction is my salvation.
i am from india and it is my first time i feel this type noise. but i will folow ur advise
It's an individual choice. What works for some doesn't for others. The important thing is not to focus on it, it's difficult but doable. Don't let it rule you, try and accept it for what it is.
if this happenes long time then people can loss hearing capacity?
Try to focus on anything other than the i know that is hard i have it ringing 24/7 but try to take your mind off of it.Thinking of everyone with Tinnitus i know how hard it is.
